Another friend claimed by a cancer that I am running to cure: Peter Warmerdam.
On November 7th, Peter passed away suddenly after a most courageous battle with Leukemia. He will be remembered as a man of faith, integrity, and spirit, who loved his family deeply. He is survived by: his son Matthew Warmerdam and Wife Amy; daughter Amy Warmerdam; grandson Eben Traywick; son Jonathan Warmerdam and wife Paige; daughter in spirit Katherine Sullivan and family; the mother of his children Sara Bardoni and her husband David. Brothers Leo Warmerdam And Wife Patricia; Ted Warmerdam and wife Joanne. Six sisters Ann Smorrenburg Thea Van de Mortel and Husband Joe; Connie Luiten; Betty Verger and husband Burt; Ada Van Ryn; Yvonne Van Lewen and Husband Jack; and 54 Nephews And Nieces.
I did not know Peter “personally” but only through the dancing community. Let’s cure this damned thing, and leave more wonderful men for us all to cut the rug with.
